I will use CSPE and PE to implement the programme. The games like Walk the Line, Treasure Chest and Trust are excellent in building team work & communication which are vital tools in combating racism’.‘I will work with the PE department to encourage the implementation of the many excellent sports activities listed in the manual’‘The various games that were suggested on the video clips are fantastic . I particularly like the Walk The Line one as it is a whole team activity and the children really learn to work together to get a good result , it shows that no matter what you look like or where your from you still have same abilities as everyone else.’‘The young people encounter a lot more often than I would have thought’‘I have been greatly motivated in teaching this course to my students by this training and the resources that have been supplied. I will combine art and SPHE for this project and hopefully create art work on the subject’.‘I learnt from the online resource that racism is a lot more common in Ireland than I thought’‘It tackled all aspects of racism in a simple easy to follow way’.
